Inside the newsroom: stories of self-censorship

News manipulation and censorship have been done in many indirect ways, mainly economically. But sometimes, it is crude and overt in Greece: journalists cannot publish what they want, or they might lose their jobs. Even if they wanted to take the risk, the content never reaches the recipient because it is cut off by the editorial staff.

In episode 4, the interviews we hear from fellow journalists who have spoken publicly about stories of censorship in their everyday job and others who have agreed to speak anonymously about the pressures they face in the newsroom.

Show notes:
For this episode, our guests are Mahi Nicolora, a journalist working at the public broadcaster ERT, and three journalists who are dubbed by actors to preserve their anonymity.

I never asked why my grandmother Mercedes speaks Russian, German, French and Spanish perfectly. Perhaps because I sensed that this why was marked by a delicate history… A history of childhoods without parents. A story of farewells, of reunions, of escapes and persecutions. A story marked by the history of 20th century Europe: the Spanish Civil War, the Second World War, and the Cold War. I never asked why. But now… I need to break that wall. I need to understand which parts of those wars, of those untold stories, still live in me. Join me on this journey through the past to understand where we came from, who we are, and where we are heading.
